The war on ISIS and Jihadists

2 posts in this topic

So I decided to start this topic to post updates on the war against ISIS. While ISIS has terrorist cells in many Muslim countries around the world: Afghanistan, Libya, Indonesia, etc... It's territory is spread over Syria and Iraq. Most of this territory is desert  but in that desert there are many oil wells and gas extraction facilities. ISIS are still selling oil to fund their war efforts and Caliphate, but now they are being pummelled on that front.

ISIS is a quasi-government inside a quasi-country. It imposes an extremely strict Sharia law based on the extremes of the Wahhabi ideology. Non-believers must convert to Islam or be either exiled or killed, anyone being homosexual or suspected of homosexuality is executed- no questions asked. Rape and massacres are common-place, Christians are hunted, killed or chased out of their homes.

ISIS fight with mercenaries, jihadis who come from around the world, suicide bombers, ATGMs (Anti-tank Guided Missile), VBIED (Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Devices), tanks, mortars, mines, hell-cannons and jeeps/humvees fitted out with machine guns, AA-guns and other turrets.

Various Jihadi groups (known as Jihadists) such as Al-Nursa and Al-Qaeda sometimes coordinate with ISIS, but it should be noted that ISIS are not the only extremist Jihadi/Islamic faction in Syria and Iraq.

This fight against ISIS and the Jihadists is really a Muslim world war, it could be said to have started during the Arab Spring in 2011. Since then many millions of people have been displaced from their homes, probably million are dead already.

ISIS are losing the fight and the best comparison would be Germany 1944- losing ground on all fronts. I think in a year or two the ISIS caliphate will be no more.

Anyway here are some videos- R&U Videos is a youtube channel which keeps a track of the various fighting in Syria and Iraq. Please note anything in the spoilers is where viewer discretion is advised.

1. The Iraqi assault on Western Mosul.

2. Jihadists on the offensive.

3. Jihadist boobie traps and IEDs left behind in East Aleppo.

 

4. Syrian ghost towns.

Taking away ISIS territory isn't going to be the end of ISIS. They were a terrorist cell operating in Iraq long before they were a quasi state, reverting to their old practices is going to be relatively easy for them. Especially if the ground troops pacifying the areas they used to control are seen by the local population as aggressors, invaders and oppressors. 

So no, comparisons between ISIS and Nazi Germany at any stage completely miss the mark.

      Posted on social network Telegram, the terror handbook gives advice on airport bombings, random stabbings and kidnapping hostages.

      Fresh news, the Federal Police of Brazil just arrested 10 members with connection with the ISIS (it happened some minutes ago, so there are only portuguese news for now):

      Some extra informations: it occurred after ISIS open a portuguese version of their group in Telegram, the most used app by them. A few days ago a brazilian group calling itself Ansar al-Khilafah Brazil declared loyalty to ISIS. In addition to great ISIS enemies being in the Olympics, Brazil has about 90% of its population being Christian, which means that the terrorist group has nothing to lose here. Our borders are too large and it's easy to foreign terrorists entering the country.
      As a Brazilian I'm really worried about that because we're a country without much experience with these kind of things that never happened here, like terrorism or any other international real threat.
      Let's just hope for the best.

      Priest murdered by gunman.
       
      What can be said?  A gentle, aged priest killed by some fool of a radical who should be sent straight to the hell of his choice.

      This keeps getting hotter.
       
      This brouhaha has been on for over two years now, and it seems to be getting broader attention.  The Israelis claim self-defence but is it really? 
       
      There are too many toys in the middle east thanks to the "super powers" past and present.  A plague on all their houses.

      Cross border incursion?
       
      If true, a new force has entered the picture in an act of war. 
       
      Hezbollah is a member of the Lebanese coalition government, so things are heating up in the eastern Med even more.  Man's inhumanity to man is getting a thorough workout.
